Walking to the Edge!

This was my favorite hike this year - Alta, Utah - from Albion Basin to the summit above Catherine's Pass!  The ski resort is beautiful, and a great place to hike or camp in the summer months.  There are wildflowers galore in Albion Basin, and the views are spectacular from the top.  That is Lake Catherine that can be seen in the background, which features crystal-clear waters.  Now, it's all buried in snow for all of the skiers out there, who love to come to Utah to enjoy the "Greatest Snow on Earth"!   It truly is fantastic snow, light and fluffy like feathers, otherwise fondly known as champagne powder.  That is our beloved Alta, Utah!

I just commented on your open house about skiing Alta! I would love to see that area in summer. Great picture Kelly.

Hi Sam!  I wanted to try a "localism" post.  I'm a new blogger. Hope this qualifies!!  Utah is beautiful in the summer months.  You should try coming out and hiking.  It was kind of cold that day.  This was in August.  I kept my jacket on cause it was a little brisk up on high!!   Come on out to Utah we do have some beautiful mountains and gorgeous sunsets.  - You've probably been where I was standing!!

Kelly I thought you said you were going to embrace blogging and not be afraid, but what happened?  It's really simple really, just DO IT.  Don't let your fears hold you back... it's just like taking a hike... one step at a time and soon you're at the top looking back and wondering what the big deal was.  I find there are endless things to "blog" about.  Take your camera with you, snap a few pictures, add a few words, and that's all there is to it.  Good luck!

Georgina - Thank you for the "gentle" kick ... I needed it!!  I really do love the blogging & I enjoyed writing the few that I started with - I think it spooked me- I got 2 Gold Stars out of 3 blogs.  Wowzee - I have high expectations for myself so with your sweet encouragement I'll try it again.  Thank you for taking the time to post to me.

Dear Kelly - You are in beautiful territory for sure!!  My daughter & I started skiing at Brighton & Snowbird when she was 4...we did visit Alta a few years after.  It is a stunning mountain & more toward the progressive skier.  I have always wished to go back in the Summer....schedules are harder to align at times.  Thanks so much for the inspiration & the beautiful photo & look forward to much blog sharing ahead :).  It helps to remind us when we can't be there..... & remember the passion of why we should :)
